I know Beta 10 is now available, but thought I'd raise this point
(raised to me) against Beta 9 just in case...

The following javadoc for 

class org.jdom.Element 

     * Determines if this element is the ancestor of another element.
     * @param element <code>Element</code> to check against
     * @return <code>true</code> if this element is the ancestor of the
     *         supplied element
    public boolean isAncestor(Element element) {

is remarkable because the method does just the opposite :-)


parent.isAncestor(child) is FALSE
child.isAncestor(parent) is TRUE
